Who was the first GS winner of your lifetime?

That is, who won the first major played after you were born?

(Yes this is a completely useless thread).

Mine was Adriano Panatta. Vai!!!

Adriano Who ?????

This thread isn't useless at all. I looked him up to find out who the heck he was. HaHa Let's see how much we can all learn!

Mine was Ken Rosewall. Darn, everyone will know him.

You can see Panatta play in one of these clips vs. Connors (but of course, it is Connors who gets all the glory!):
